Re: Lowes only approved me for $1,000?!?!?!?

Lowes is arguably the easiest GE card to get major luv on unfortunately the front line CSRs dont typically understand how credit works so whatever they told you, do so with a grain of salt.

Yeah Credit Solutions is the way to go.

Gecrb is pretty good for cli.....at least for me.  I just got a Lowes card with a 3K limit.  Didn't ask for more because I have gotten an Ebay abat ebates card within the past 45 days, one for 5k and the other 4k.   After a few mos will try for cli on all three.  Wouldn't hurt to call and try though for a quick cli On your card though.

+1, ask for $40k and they'll counter and meet you somewhere in the middle Smiley Wink


LOL.   FWIW, I've never seen a GE backed card go higher than $29K, but may as well aim high

Grats on the new card & good luck with Cred Solutions Smiley Happy

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

For what it's worth......after posting this last night I decided "what the heck" I called credit solutions this AM and got bumped to 6K.....will look forward to 10K in 4-6 mos......the OP should really consider calling them
